I wonder if the German word krank (sick) and the English word cranky are etymologically related. I've caught some sore-throat-and-sinus trouble, and I was certainly pretty cranky about it until a few minutes ago.

Then I made myself a cup of tea and checked e-mail. A cup of tea is good for a day of ill health. I still have a headache, and the honey in the tea didn't make the sore throat disappear, but at least my belly is warm.
